It was gathered that about four kidnappers, suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, armed with sophisticated weapons and shooting sporadically, invaded the farm and demanded for the farm owner.
When they discovered that the owner was not around, they descended on his son and took him to an unknown destination.
It was learnt that the kidnappers used the victim’s phone to call his father at about 10pm on Monday night, and demanded a sum of N100 million as ransom.
According to a family member who spoke on condition of anonymity, since the call on Monday night, the kidnappers had yet to call back.
Many landlords, residents, vigilante group members and security guards kept vigil at the scene of the incident.

When contacted, the Police spokesperson in Oyo State, CSP Olugbenga Fadeyi, said that the Command is working towards securing the freedom of the victim from his abductors.
